Navigating the Website

All of ICML 2021 will be accessed through the main webpage. You may access all parts of the conference using the top menu bar. Check the Schedule to get an overview of when the live sessions for all events are taking place. You may navigate all the papers in the Papers section. You may search for titles and authors or look through all papers by skimming titles and bookmarking them. You can bookmark other sessions as well. If you go to your name in the top right corner and click on My Bookmarks in the dropdown menu, you can Download the schedule with all sessions you bookmarked and you can import it in your calendar. You can take a break and socialize in the ICML Café any time during the conference. 


We encourage everyone to visit the sponsor hall just like you would at the physical conference


  • Each event has a live stream on the top of the page that you can watch during and after the presentation.
  • Finished videos will be available after the conference.


This is a cautionary tale about timezones. Several attendees have noticed that the times shown on the virtual website appeared incorrect.   The problem was that they chose a timezone that did not adjust for daylight savings time.   We highly recommend picking a timezone based on a nearby city, especially if your area observes daylight savings time. Timezones are political and complex and thus confusing. Please check your timezone, and preferably choose a zone based on a city.   Note that we are currently in Daylight Savings Time rather than Standard time in most, but not all of the US and Europe. 

Your current timezone: . (Note: the paper browser uses your system timezone.)
